anything drop in prices. and one of the country's busiest roadway, the 405 through los angeles has reopened this morning after what was called carmageddon two. le freeways had to be closed so crews could tear down that bridge spanning. and a large part of the bridge came crashing down unexpectedly on a hillside below, no one was hurt, in fact, they opened the freeway ahead of schedule. meanwhile, overseas, winds topping 100 miles per hour. in japan, look what it does to that car. picks it up and throws it like a toy all the way across that parking lot. no one was inside the car at the time the wind struck. the storm, meanwhile, dumped some 20 inches of rain in central japan. and we close with a sunday that will not be forgotten by anyone watching. a stunning collapse by the u.s. team at the ryder cup in chicago. let the groans fly, people.
7:06am
all the americans had to do is win 4 out of 12 singles matches sunday in front of a raucous crowd in medinah, just outside of chicago. falling painfully short losing to the europeans, 14 1/2 to 13 1/2. europe's top player rory mcelroy almost didn't make it to the tee time. he was watching the golf channel in his hotel. he was actually in central time. got there with minutes to spare. still managed to win his match as did virtually everyone else. >> i know. my husband was walking around and groaning. >> it was a catatonic afternoon. and a race to the white house and a new abc news/"washington post" poll out this morning shows president obama has a narrow lead just before the first crucial debate coming up this wednesday. in a moment, we're going to have former california governor
7:07am
schwarzenegger schwarzenegger weigh in on all of this but it is "your voice your vote" and abc's david muir is here with the latest. good morning. >> good morning. this is a tight race, in fact the new poll shows president obama leads just two points likely among voters. and this morning, just two days before that big debate, who do voters think will win? >> hello, las vegas! >> reporter: overnight in las vegas, the president claimed the odds talking predictions about the first all-important debate. >> i know folks in the media are speculating who is going to have the best zinger. governor romney, he's a great debater. >> reporter: the with the razor-thin lead among voters, when voters are asked who they expect to win, 63% of voters told us they think the president will win in november. as for the all important debate, 56% said they expect the president to win. both campaigns deep into it,
7:08am
both trying to lower expectations. with one noted exception, republican chris christie telling george, expect a difference race. >> when we get to thursday morning, george, you'll be shaking your head saying it's a brand new race. >> reporter: and christi's response -- >> stop lying. he's saying that the wealthy will pay just as much. >> reporter: he will lower tax rates across the board but lower common deductions, too. with the new poll showing the majority expecting the president to win the debate, the president's focus will be to avoid unforced errors. like president bush checking his watch. and then taking that awkward step towards george w. bush. >> so many believe that al gore had invaded george bush's
7:09am
personal space there. we had a poll asking who would you like to see on "dancing with the stars," 51% said the president. 26% said romney. but also this, who would you trust to babysit your children? 41%. >> i can expect that. one a father, one a grandfather. george? thank you very much. arnold schwarzenegger here for his first live interview about his autobiography "total recall: my unbelievably true life story." it's on sale now. on body building and business and the movies and politics and the affair with the housekeeper. and the moment he finally confessed to his wife maria shriver. let's start out with politics now. you're still a republican, right? >> yes. >> but you haven't yet committed to mitt romney.
7:10am
why? >> well, i always wait until the last minute. and there's some very interesting debates coming up. and i think it's always nice when you see both of the candidates next to each other and debate the issues. >> is there a chance that you could vote for president obama? >> i'm open-minded. i want to hear what everyone has to say. and i'm not one that just votes on one issue. i vote on the whole package so which one of the candidates has the best package. because no one is perfect. no one is exactly what you want. the idea that you can put two candidates together, but that isn't going to happen. so, you know, i keep an open mind. >> let's talk about the book a little bit. we asked maria shriver to comment. she's not given one yet. did she let you know what she thinks about it? >> well, i think it's very difficult, you know, obviously,
7:11am
for the family and the kids when this whole thing kind of gets brought back. >> in what way? >> well, the book, the idea at the time just have to write an autobiography for the last 20 years. i always thought there wasn't enough of a story. i didn't have time because i was doing two, three movies a year. but i think after the governorship, you know, i started thinking about it again. and just one of the most incredible immigrant stories. it's extraordinary when you think about coming over here with absolutely no money and making it through the body building sport and becoming the best and winning championships. then going into movies when everyone thought it would never happen, a leading man in movies with an accent, with a name like that. and not really having any acting background and climb up to be the highest paid actor in the history of motion pictures.
7:12am
and then all of a sudden, there's a recall election in california. and to become governor of the greatest state in the union. this is extraordinary. >> it certainly is. you write about how the day after you left the governorship, maria confronted you in the therapist's office. but she also confronted you many years before, correct? >> yes. i think losing the family, i just can't know how. >> do you think you should have? >> well, it's easy to be smart in hindsight. but the bottom line is, what it is then over what it is now, it's just one of the sad situations that i've created. and it's the worst thing i've ever done. >> worst thing you've ever done? worst secret? >> well, not just the worst
7:13am
secret. it's just it hurt so many people. and the mistakes and the failures that i've had in the past. and i write about all of them in the book. >> you do. >> because i always felt that it should be a book about me, and not just about my successes. because there's downsides, there's mistakes that i've made in politics, in personal life. in movies and so on. but this is the worst because it affected so many people. >> it affected so many people. i want to talk about the political effect as well. you know, i was talking to my wife about this, in the book, the part she could not get over, how do you keep mildred in the house knowing all of this? >> well, it's worse when you start getting rid of people, it's kind of like punishing somebody for having been in this situation. so that's the best way that i could handle it. i think the important thing now is for, "a," recognize it. and i think that doing the book was really kind of an interesting way of analyzing the
7:14am
life i hate, going back and thinking about the past. whether it's my childhood or the body building, anything. this book made me look back. and i think analyzing that specific thing was, you know, kind of a -- really, a painful but necessary. because when you look at the whole thing, it was just so horrible. what it did to the kids and what it did to my wife. because they were really fantastic. i have the most extraordinary family. >> have you been able to repair your relationship with them? >> you know it takes time. i've had a good relationship with the kids and a very good relationship with maria. but it takes time. and i do everything that i can to work on that, because i want to get them back together. because i think we were such a terrific family. and just because of my doing, doing this stupid thing, i got
7:15am
into this situation that i'm in. >> you wrote an extraordinary thing. you say you're optimistic that you and maria will still be together. how can you find that optimism? >> i'm an optimistic person. i think it's because everyone is interested in that. i'm sure that maria didn't say that. but i'm sure that maria wishes we all could be together. and i definitely all wish we could be together. >> one final question, have you been able to be a father to joseph, your son with mildred? >> yes, and he is my son. and i will take care of him financially. and it's my obligation and i'm doing it. >> and it seems like you may have learned something from all of this. what would you say your biggest lesson you take away as you look back, and think about writing the book and go over everything in your life? >> i think that you learn, i don't know how much this helps you, but you learn that one
7:16am
stupid mistake that maybe you think is good at that moment can really destroy a lot of things and can hurt a lot of people. that don't deserve to be hurt like that. and maria did not deserve to be hurt like that, nor kids, nor do everyone in the extended family. so everyone has been hurt by that. and that's -- you know, i'm trying to rebuild all of that. >> we want to talk about much more in the book later on in the show, but right now got to get to elizabeth. george, thanks so much. now to lindsay lohan, the star accused of an aide assaulting her. >> good morning, elizabeth. she is no stronger to the lapd, and lately, she's getting to
7:17am
know the nypd pretty well. she was physically assaulted in a hotel, but this morning, it comes down to she said/he said. >> reporter: lindsay lohan may be no stranger to legal trouble, but this morning, she says this time she was the victim. 26-year-old starlet said she was assaulted on sunday by this man, a part-time congressional staffer named christian labella. labella is seen posing here with paul ryan and kim kardashian on photos on facebook reportedly met lohan over the weekend at this trendy manhattan nightclub. lohan told police that at the end of the evening, she and a group of friends invited her back to the room. but the star said when she found pictures of herself partying on his phone she took it. police say lohan ran out of the room and into a stairwell, but
7:18am
labella allegedly followed her, choking her from behind and throwing her to the ground. at that point, lohan told police she pulled a fire alarm. officers later arrested labella as he tried to leave the "w." he was initially charged with third degree assault and harassment but the charges were later dropped. >> this is more high school than it is criminal. the police really sort of view this as a minor altercation. >> reporter: police now say they have documented harassment complaints from both lohan and labella. >> it really is no surprise something like this happens when you're using bad judgment. and of course, this is just the latest headline from lohan after she arrived a few weeks ago. another hit and run incident outside of a club. a man accused her of hitting him and leaving the scene. >> all of this happening at 4:30 in the morning. don't these people sleep? sam? >> no, they probably don't. not according to the headlines.
7:19am

7:34am
to say here, they're going to say he was entrapped. >> that's what i was going to ask you, it seems like the friend was trying to get in touch with him. >> look, if they can get that tape excluded from evidence. there's going to be very little that the authorities have. they need that tape in evidence. and they're going to say, look, i was never going to go forward with this and this guy starts giving me ideas, why don't you do this or do that. >> how common are these incidences in hostile in cases >> they're not. i don't think they're that relevant here you're talking about a misdemeanor case in 1995. you're talking about an allegation with regard to his conduct at school in 2001. remember, there was never an allegation of him doing anything to children. it was always the way that he dealt with authority, fellow teachers, et cetera. but, you know, compared to an allegation of solicitation to

and a crew of pilots wearing parachutes. they jump out of the back of a plane. then the huge jet line esche careens into the ground. a horrific, yet survivable crash that tears the plane apart. this stunning crash was done for the discovery channel's "curiosity plane crash," after four years of planning and with a huge team of experts. >> parts are still running. look at that. >> reporter: all to better understand what really happens to people on board. >> i suspect this one may have a concussion that one may have a broken leg. >> reporter: dr. cindy burr was in charge of the unlucky passengers. she told us her data makes it crystal clear that you prepare for an impact. what should you do, put your hands over -- >> pull your head down and hold it. >> reporter: and that works? >> yeah, it does.
7:42am
>> reporter: the crash was a belly flop slightly nose front. passengers near the front took the brunt of it. asset 7-a was actually catapulted out of the plane. many of the seat belt passengers had spinal injuries from jerking forward from the lap belt. and she showed us something else in her lab. a simulated mother holding an infant on her lap. a familiar money-saver for parents everywhere. after a relatively minor impact, the mother can't hold on, even though she's done the same thing as a parent, dr. burr said having a child on your lap simply isn't safe. >> it hits the mother, did you see that? >> reporter: the plane crash revealed other things, too, like the tremendous amount of debris that can be deadly to anyone sitting upright. also, how critical it is to be able to make your way out fast. generally sitting within five rows. an exit gives a passenger the
7:43am
best odds. heard le heartlesssons from a harrowing crash. for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, detroit. >> we're joined now by experts involved in this experiment, dr. cindy burr from wayne state university and dr. thomas bar. good morning, welcome to both of you. dr. burr, i want to start with you, we talk about the importance of bracing. it's because of all the debris flying, right? >> well, it's the debris flying around, you're very vulnerable in that upright position. it's amazing how much blew into the plane. with the crash test dummy, the one in the braced position actually had lower risks.
7:44am
>> but also with smoke, with flames, to be down like that and even to be covered by a coat or one of the blankets on board can help protect you? >> exactly. that's exactly what we're seeing. >> it also showed that passengers sitting within five rows of the exit had a much higher chance of surviving. but the important thing is, because we can't all sit there, have a plan. if you know -- usually, it's not an unexpected event. you know youe about to crash. look around when you get on the airplane. look where the exit row is. count the rows from your row to the exit, have a plan once the chaos starts? >> exactly. because once that chaos starts because it's really hard to see what to do. plan ahead. >> this was also designed to make airplanes more flame retardant structurely, did this surprise you watching this? >> well, it surprised us in the sense it gave us a full crash environment so you really get to
7:45am
see the whole picture which you never get to see in the lab. so it gives us an opportunity to have a whole new data set to use for seats and interiors. >> so what would you change now? >> well, it's difficult to say what you would change. like there's nothing -- they're doing a pretty good job right now. it validated what the current safety regulations and measures are doing. so without making a big drastic change, oh, this is a problem. in other words, it gives you information that says, okay, we can do this, we can use the forces we measured at the floor to see how better seats and interiors could be designed. >> for example, at the start of the show today. we had a row of seats become unbolted from an airplane in flight. >> right. >> might you be strengthening those on other flights coming up? >> it's probably more of a maintenance issue. the strength is usually good. it's making sure everything's put in properly but it will help you understand the limits of survivability. >> well, it's a fascinating experience. most crashes are in fact surv e
7:46am
